The Drawing Room Project - A Poetry Workshop

The fourth retreat of the Drawing Room Project, a poetry workshop, is scheduled for November 10-13, 2017 in Good Hope, Trelawny, Jamaica. Olive Senior will facilitate the workshop.

Based on their experiences at the Calabash Festival, poets Millicent Graham and Joni Jackson co-founded the Drawing Room Project and the first retreat was held in 2008.
